These talking Zingzilla toys aren't cheap with a retail price of £16.99 each. The main characters from the popular television show (of the same name) are all available: Zak, Panzee, Todd and Drum. Our grandson owns two of these guys, and both were bought for about half the retail price in a recent Tesco Toy sale. I don't think we'd have been willing to pay more for them but some parents might feel differently if they are buying them for younger children. We didn't think our grandson was likely to play with them for more than a few months - and we were right.
He's had these toys for nearly three months now, and we've not seen him touch them in about two. They're large (but not huge) soft toys that say a couple of phrases when their tummies are squeezed. It's not hard to activate them, and the phrases are obviously taken directly from the original characters so kids will recognise them right away. They only say a couple of things each though, which many kids over about three years of age will get bored of pretty quickly.
Besides talking, they don't really 'do' anything. They're just soft toys. Great if you've got a little one who actually plays with soft toys, a waste of money if you've got a child who tends to love new soft toys for the first two weeks - then leaves them laying under the bed ever after.
These are decent quality toys, and they look like they're supposed to as well. Zingzilla fans will instantly recognise these. I just don't think they hold much play appeal. Perhaps if they'd gone the whole hog and made them walking and talking toys, they'd rate higher with me (and the grandson). Alternatively, they could have left them as regular soft toys and knocked the price tag right down. A bit of a waste of money for us, but you live - you learn.
